Did you ever make a construction paper turkey by tracing around your hand?I did - every year of elementary school, it seemed. So why not subject my almost four-year-old to the same kind of torture? - and before he's even in school I might add (heeheehee).
Actually, Jack tends to be a bit of a perfectionist and shows very little patience when he can't do something right the first time (I can't imagine where he got that from...oops). His preschool teachers have asked me to work with him on cutting with scissors. I guess, while at school, Jack ends up ripping up his "work" when he can't cut it exactly right and thus needs to practice. Maybe he should first learn how to actually hold the scissors correctly...
So yesterday, we went to work making a turkey (if only Thanksgiving dinner could be made this easily). He was so very proud of himself and he had a great time making it (after all, it was his first time - maybe in a few years, after he has done it year after year, he will actually realize what a tedious and cheesy project this really is).
So, just out of curiosity does anyone else have any exciting Thanksgiving projects, preferably calling for the use of scissors?
